Lean Green Energy Harvesting Machine

PMICs and Biofuel Micro Trigeneration

In the venerable words of Kermit the Frog, “It’s not that easy being green“, but in this week’s Fish Fry we’re going to show you that being green may be getting a whole lot easier. We examine a new Micro Trigeneration Prototyping system coming out of the University of Newcastle that aims to cool, heat, and provide electricity to your home using unprocessed plant oils. Tom Sparkman (Spansion) and I also explore Spansion’s super green new family of power management integrated circuits for energy harvesting targeted at the IoT market.
